Like most website operators, Compute Software collects non-personally-identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Compute Software’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Compute Software’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Compute Software may release non-personally-identifiable information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Compute Software uses your information to fulfill requests for information or for such other business purposes as you may initiate or request. We may keep any of your information on file and use it to contact you.
Compute Software also collects potentially personally-identifiable information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. Compute Software only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifiable information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifiable Information
Certain visitors to the Site choose to interact with Compute Software in ways that require Compute Software to gather personally-identifiable information. The amount and type of information that Compute Software gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, those who engage in transactions with Compute Software are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Compute Software collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Compute Software. Compute Software does not disclose personally-identifiable information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifiable information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities.
